Basildon Academies - Bronze Level Anti-Bullying Accreditation Report

WHOLE SCHOOL_ 5 ASSEMBLIES_ THE BUBBLE_ The Anti-Bullying Ambassadors have shown that their personal development in areas such as public speaking and campaigning have gone from strenth to strength. The Anti-Bullying Ambassadors have lead various assemblies, directed at the whole school, in addition to a seperate staff assembly. Positive messages about Respect were delivered, with the aim of creating a united, empathetic and considerate school. This is a really great was to ensure that bullying is prevented through inspiring a positive culture in and around the school. The Ambassadors also focused on building their peers emotional resilience and self-esteem, which would have many individual positive benefits for those who are experiencing friendship turmoil, exam stress or other difficult personal circumstances. The Bubble is a safe space which allows students who need a quiet place to sit or an empathetic ear to listen to any worries they may have. The Anti-Bullying Ambassadors have played a big role in staffing The Bubble, giving up their lunch times to support students who need some guidance. Offering a safe space is a really encouraging way to reassure students that there is always someone to talk to, no matter what the worry is. Having the Ambassadors run this safe space will allow the other students to relate and feel comfortable discussing their worries.
